Some struggle with what God is like; many struggle to see how God is present. This was also true in the time and place where Isaiah spoke. With this in mind, Isaiah offers words of great comfort for us today when he anticipated that Jesus is one about whom people can now say, “Here is your God.” The presence of Jesus is that of “the sovereign Lord” (40:10); his rule is like a “shepherd that tends his flock” (40:11). Truly, we have in him good news; truly, we can lift our voices to him.
